Mōsō♡Express (妄想♡エクスプレス, mousou♡ekusupuresu) is the third opening theme song of Monogatari Series Second Season, played during the Nadeko Medusa story (Episodes 12 and 14 for the TV broadcast and Episodes 10 and 12 for the disc releases). It was written by meg rock, composed and arranged by Satoru Kousaki and performed by Kana Hanazawa, who plays the role of Nadeko Sengoku.

Background

In stark contrast to "Renai Circulation", "Mousou Express" symbolizes Nadeko's change in character in the Nadeko Medusa story arc while retaining her cute image. The song's chorus, for example, reflects Nadeko's outlook on the world during the events of Nadeko Medusa: "If the world can’t be the way I want / Then I have no use for it anymore / There’s only one thing I desire / Everything Everything Everything Everything".

The opening credits used for the arc makes several references to the credits for "Renai Circulation", although there are several changes like a dark color scheme instead of the pastel colors of "Renai Circulation", and some scenes in "Renai" played in reverse. where the previously timid Nadeko who was surrounded by pastel colors are now depicted as snatching Koyomi Araragi while the credits use a darker color scheme.

Lyrics

Note: The original lyrics to this song are written completely in hiragana.

Original Japanese Japanese Rōmaji English Translation
もうそうがね ぼうそうする

ちょうとっきゅうに とびのって
いま あいにいきたいの

mousou ga ne bousou suru

choutokyuu ni tobinotte
ima ai ni yukitai no

My delusions make me want to scape

And suddenly jump
To go see you

いいわけとか りゆうだとか

めんどくさいな

うんめいだから しかたがないよね

iiwake to ka riyuu da to ka

mendokusai na
unmei dakara shikata ga nai yo ne

Excuses and reasons

I can't be bothered
It's because it's fate
there is nothing to do about it

かなわなければ このこいは

えいえんに さめることもないの
なにもしらない めをとじて
かわいいままで ほしにねがった

kanawanakereba kono koi wa

eien ni sameru koto mo nai no
nani mo shiranai me wo tojite
kawaii mama de hoshi ni negatta

If it is possible, from this love

I don't want to wake up
Without knowing anything, closing my eyes
To be always cute is what I asked the stars

おもいどおりにならない

せかいなら もういらない
ほしいのは ひとつだけ
ぜんぶ ぜんぶ ぜんぶ ぜんぶ

omoidoori ni naranai

sekai nara mou iranai
hoshii no wa hitotsu dake
zenbu zenbu zenbu zenbu

Nothing goes the way I want

I don't need anything from the world
There's only one thing I want from the stars and that is:
Everything Everything Everything Everything

おもいどおりにならない

せかいとか ありえない
ほしいのは ひとつだけ
ぜんぶ ぜんぶ ぜんぶ ぜんぶ

omoidoori ni naranai

sekai to ka arienai
hoshii no wa hitotsu dake
zenbu zenbu zenbu zenbu

Nothing goes the way I want

It's impossible for this world
There's only one thing I want from the stars and that is:
Everything Everything Everything Everything

このきもちは このきもちにしか わかんないのに

みんなかってに きめつけすぎだし
しらないのに しったふりで そんな かんたんに
あきらめちゃうの もったいないよね

kono kimochi wa kono

kimochi ni shika
wakannai no ni
minna katte ni

kimetsukesugi da shi
shiranai no ni shitta furi de sonna kantan ni

akiramechau no mottainai yo ne

Even though just this feeling knows this feeling
Everyone condemns it very selfishly

Pretending to know even though they don't know.

It's a waste to give up that easily.

かなわなければ このゆめは

えいえんに さめることもないの
なにもしらない めをとじて
かわいいままで ほしにねがった

kanawanakereba
kono yume wa

eien ni sameru koto mo nai no
nani mo shiranai
me wo tojite
kawaii mama de hoshi ni negatta

If it is possible, from this dream

I don't want to wake up
Without knowing anything, closing my eyes
To be always cute is what I asked the stars

おもいどおりにならない

せかいなら もういらない
ほしいのは ひとつだけ
ぜんぶ ぜんぶ ぜんぶ ぜんぶ

omoi doori ni naranai

sekai nara mou iranai
hoshii no wa hitotsu dake
zenbu zenbu zenbu zenbu

Nothing goes the way I want

I don't need anything from the world
There's only one thing I want from the stars and that is:
Everything Everything Everything Everything

おもいどおりにならない
